IRON MOUNTAIN — The stage that hosts bands for Out to Lunch, Italian Fest and Oktoberfest in Iron Mountain now has “a clean, updated look,” thanks to U.P. Color, according to the Downtown Development Authority.

With paint donated by Sherwin-Williams, U.P. Color decked the performance venue in downtown Iron Mountain with the DDA’s IM Downtown branding color.

The stage in the parking lot directly across Iron Mountain Street from the Dickinson County Library “has been an asset to our community events for over a decade,” featuring many different performers, the DDA stated in a news release. It was built in 2010, with the park area around the stage added in 2012.

The DDA “is grateful for the time and talent donated by UP Color to repaint the stage used for so many entertainment opportunities for our community,” the DDA stated, adding they appreciate as well “all our volunteers and donors who help make the downtown a destination spot for our community.”

The mission of the Downtown Development Authority is to create a vibrant downtown in Iron Mountain by promoting economic growth through organizing community events, attracting new businesses and advancing the beautification and historic preservation within the district.
